2016 Volkswagen Eos REVIEW

Rumors of its demise have been exaggerated, but only by a year. Production ended in November, so the 2016 Volkswagen Eos is the swan song of this German compact hardtop convertible. Though not exceedingly popular, the Eos occupies a niche as one of a few inexpensive hardtop convertibles on the market, and the only one with four seats. Further, its attractive and pleasantly upholstered interior provides a near-luxury experience without the matching price tag. The 2016 Volkswagen Eos is the only inexpensive hardtop convertible with seating for four. The Eos offers a compelling package to the right buyer. Its retractable hardtop isolates and secures the interior more strongly than a conventional soft top. What's more, the Eos' trick top features a sunroof, so you can dip your toes in the outside weather before jumping in. On the other hand, the hardtop is heavier than a soft top, which somewhat numbs the 200 horsepower from the turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The drivetrain remains enjoyable nevertheless, thanks in part to its quick-shifting automated manual transmission. When the Eos sells out, those looking for a similar convertible at this price won't find much. The closest match is the new Buick Cascada, which is similar in many respects but has a traditional soft top. The popular Mazda Miata will provide more driving enjoyment but fewer seats, while the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro convertibles offer bolder styling and more engine choices. The Mini Cooper and Volkswagen's own Beetle convertible have near-premium interiors with heavy doses of personality. But if it's the hardtop you really need, the Volkswagen Eos is your choice.
